Song by John Legend

I’ve written about love before, but this song really is making me do it again. This is by far one of my favorite songs at the moment and is just one of those songs that just makes you think and feel. This kind of love is out there for every person, it is a type of love that everyone should feel once in their life. It is the kind of love that brings out the best in people. What kind of love am I talking about? It’s the love that knows no boundaries. The kind of love that, when you see that person, makes you feel like everything in the world is right. I know somewhere out there, somewhere, that kind of love exists for every person whether you believe it or not.

I may just be one of those people that believe that everyone exists on this world for a purpose and every person on this earth is supposed to, one day, find their purpose. But, I also believe that beyond the purpose of helping humanity in some way, each and every one of us has the purpose to love somebody unconditionally. The type of love that is portrayed in this song shows acknowledgement that no one is perfect, but it is the love of somebody’s imperfections that drives what true love really is. It is giving yourself and expecting the entirety of the other person that drives a relationship that is brought together by love. It is truly trusting in and believing in what you’ve got that keeps the relationship going.

Someday, I hope to find that love. Someday, I know I will find it. Someday, it’ll just show up unexpectedly and slap me in the face. Until that day, I will continue to believe that it’ll come, because, like I said, every person on this earth has a purpose. My purpose? Your purpose? Love unconditionally and with everything you have.

Getting fixed


Contemplation of life and what life has to offer leads to some of the most incredible human emotions a person can have.

What does life have to offer?

Can I learn from my mistakes?

How will I get through this next day after all the times I’ve messed up?

Can I get out of moving in reverse?

I want NEED something to ignite me!

For everyone, there is a guide.  For me, it’s my relationship with God.  It’s been a relationship I’ve had for a really long time, a relationship that I’ve let suffer but still one that I hold on to and cherish.  I know every time I am struggling, every time I am in a corner, every time I need help to get out of a funk, and every time I need someone to help push me along this road we call life….

I have someone to look towards,

someone to pray to,

someone who will help me not only get by,

but truly conquer ANYTHING!

Religion is a touchy subject, one that causes fighting and arguments far too often.  But religion is something that the majority of people believe in.  It gives me something greater than myself to believe in.  It gives me more than hope.  After all, the coincidences of life can’t purely be coincidence all the time…. can it?  There has to be someone out there playing a role in my life,

I believe it, I know it as fact.

For someone else, maybe it’s not God that you believe in, maybe you believe in no higher powers.  Whatever you believe in, there is something that guides you out of the dark, a light for your path, something that guides you back to reality and out of the dark.   Stop trying to fight for what you want and really dig deep to find what you need.

What is it you truly need?

Love? Life? Happiness? Confidence? Family? Friends?

Life is no more than a roller coaster.  A roller coaster of emotions and happiness from day 1.

As a baby you are happy one second than hungry the next, only to be satisfied soon after and tired shortly after this.

As a child, optimism for what the day has to come and disappointment for not getting that one thing you so desperately wanted.

As a teenager, relationships and friendships are nothing more than their own personal roller coasters of ups and downs.

The list can go on and on, but for me, I find strength and confidence in my every day knowing that I have a “light that will guide me home” and someone who will not only try to fix me but will, in time succeed in making my life more than what I can even imagine.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11

What gives you hope?  What will fix you in your times of need?

For me, I can without a doubt say God, family, and friends.

For you?

My Wish For You


When I was graduating high school this song was just becoming popular and at my graduation party my mom had played this song for me.  Thinking lately about everything I’ve been through while in college, this song has meant a lot.  Through my entire time in college, I don’t think anyone has stood behind me and motivated me to do the best that I can do more than my mom.  Whenever I start getting down on myself, whenever I start doubting myself, whenever I don’t think I can do any better, she’s there giving me the confidence to keep going.  As a human we all have weaker moments where we doubt ourselves or don’t think we can push ourselves to do any better.  It’s at these moments where we hope someone close in our lives helps push us along to our full potential.

Mom, thank you for everything you’ve done for me; for motivating me, for pushing me to be a better person, for teaching me life lessons, for being there for me, for helping me, and for the never-ending list of things you have done for me in my life.  I don’t say this enough, thank you and I love you.  I couldn’t ask for a better mom, a mom who is my…

 

Who is your Wonderwall?


One of the most beautiful songs ever written remade in A Cappella.  This is an absolutely amazing remix of this song that really fills me with so many emotions.  It truly makes you think about anyone special in your life that you might have feelings for or once had feelings for.  Feelings of love, encouragement, a true desire for someone, or a purely innocent infatuation with someone you’ve known for a while or might have just met. There is someone out there that is your wonderwall, that one person in this world that saves you from despair or rejection.  The lyrics in themselves are so well put together you cannot help but to think about someone close to you while listening to the song, but the way this remix was done in A Cappella just mixes together everything to completely immerse you into deep thought and relaxation. Who is your wonderwall?

The lyrics are below if you would like to read them. Well written Oasis. Great Performance SNC.

Today is gonna be the day
That they’re gonna throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you gotta do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do about you now

Backbeat the word was on the street
That the fire in your heart is out
I’m sure you’ve heard it all before
But you never really had a doubt
I don’t believe that anybody feels
The way I do about you now

And all the roads we have to walk along are winding
And all the lights that lead us there are blinding
There are many things that I would
Like to say to you
I don’t know how

Because maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

Today was gonna be the day?
But they’ll never throw it back to you
By now you should’ve somehow
Realized what you’re not to do
I don’t believe that anybody
Feels the way I do
About you now

And all the roads that lead to you were winding
And all the lights that light the way are blinding
There are many things that I would like to say to you
I don’t know how

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after all
You’re my wonderwall

I said maybe
You’re gonna be the one who saves me ?
And after an
You’re my wonderwall

Said maybe
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
You’re gonna be the one that saves me
